But – there is more. Because that is the reason, but now for the understanding of the fulfillment of the law. And what other part is our part in
order to get it. This is the part many Christians miss.
Jesus came to free us from the power that sin has over us, while we are slaves to sin. He came to free us, to nullify the veil of sin with His
nullification. But we have to accept our part in this, because Grace must be fully accepted, and as Jesus said, In order to share in my Life, you must
also partake in my death.
He died, so that we might rise with him to new life. He took down the veil and rent it asunder, so that we might have the ability to be presented holy
just as Jesus is Holy before God. In our own humanity we are incapable. Because just as Jesus was born under sin, lived, then died and resurrected to
life, so must we also be born under sin, live then die to this world so that we may resurrect to New life with Christ Jesus.
Through Jesus, we can live holy lives, and loose the barrier between us and God that sin provides. This is the baptism of death that Paul spoke of.
Through faith in the fulfillment of God's promise, we take our sins and the things of the world we love, and we give them all to Jesus because HE
alone conquered death. We cannot do this in ourselves, we can only do this now that we have invited Jesus into our heart as Lord and Savior and can
only become those who overcome sin with HIM, by partaking in his death in spirit. To live HIS life, we must now die HIS death..
We are held hostage by sin, and to become free, we must offer our sin freely up to HIM, and allow HIM to take the burden upon HIMSELF since HE alone
overcame and then die to the things in this world that men hold above God.
What sin necessarily is apart from Mosaic law, since Jesus is the Righteous King that Abraham gave tithe, in Jesus then, through HIS death the law was
reverted back to its beginnings, back to God's law, and sin are those things we hold above God. Love is the new covenant, love of God first and
foremost, then to love our neighbor as ourselves. These two things are what hinges all the laws, and all the prophets. Everything from beginning to
now was about those two things.
If you truly love a thing, nothing gets between you and that thing you love. God is saying, I want to be that thing for you, because I loved you
first, because you are my people, and I loved you also, because you are my creation. So let's make HIM our first love, before anything else in the
world. Before love of ego, love of pride, love of anything that puts up those barriers. If someone is hungry and begging in the street for food, what
would you want someone doing for you, then do it for them. If the whole world did this can you imagine what a beautiful world this would be?
Yet.. this is HIS plan for us people, just peace and happiness in HIM. This is a wonderful thing, so, though with free will comes the occasion for
troubles coming at us, we can still walk in the perfection of Light, and show HIM to the world. Its a better way for man, and our job to live it, to
breath it, to be what our Creator would have for us. Has what we wanted for ourselves gotten us anywhere in this life, really? If we are being
perfectly honest with ourselves, what profit did not obeying HIS plan have for us?
So lets now reason together, and give it all to Jesus the Messiah. Take all our burdens, oh you who are heavily burdened, and give all your sins to
HIM. Gather up the sins you have, those things HE is telling you now that you don't need. He will tell you whatever yours are. For each man these
things are different. They simply are the things which create a barrier between you and God. It is not the thing which makes it a sin, but it is how
you place it before God that becomes the sin. You have thus violated the commandment to Love the Lord Your God with all your heart, and all your soul
and have no other Gods before HIM. For one man his wealth, for another his pride, for another his addiction, for every man a different thing.
Life in HIS Kingdom is one of moderation. One devoid of excess and one that puts HIM first. So now we know in ourselves we cannot do this thing, we
cannot stop at all, at all. That is okay, because HE took it for you, HE will now carry your burden and take it from you. He who overcame, who now
lives inside your heart, Already took that burden of sin from you. It happened 2000 years ago. The work is finished, all things complete.
It is finished! He cried!
Take the sins you carry, and give them to HIM at the foot of the cross. Lay them all right there at HIS feet, HE who shares with us our pains, He who
shared with us our desire to live Holy, He who shares our humanity. Lay them down my brother.
Now get on the cross with HIM, and die HIS death. He already took the pain, He already took the thirst, He already took it all and paid the price, now
your faith in HIM will be refined just as gold is refined in the fire. Oh ye of little faith, HE told the people, you cannot do this in yourself, in
the old man. You can only do this in the new man, in the Risen Savior.
It already happened, you were called, set apart, and chosen. "For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his
Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren." —Romans 8:29
In God's reckoning of time the you of the future already did this. Go get the person who you are in your future, you the called one's of God, do
this in Christ Jesus because through HIM all power is given, and become over-comers of this world in HIM.
He did the work, you do not have any work to do, just have faith in the finished work, and know that your burden is gone, carried by Him.. For Paul
and for me, it helps to say I am crucified with Christ. You do not literally die, but it is a death of spiritual nature. Picture the cross and the
death in your minds eye if need be, and give it all to HIM.
You don't need to reach for that pride, you don't need to reach for that wealth to comfort you, you don't need the addictive habit. Put it all on
HIM, and be free from your sin. Be free from any and all power that sin had over you, and then rise to new life in Christ Jesus.
Experience the spiritual death, so that you may partake in the new life with HIM. Walk in the garden with HIM who carries your load, talk with the God
of all creation anytime day or night. Have every need met without need of asking. Be ye therefore Children of God. Walk in the Light. Shun the
Darkness of your adversary. Be ye Holy even as He is Holy.
Its not you doing it, its all HIM. This is the meaning of savior. This is the meaning of life. This is going to be your life more abundant.
Did you falter? That is okay, because HE promises forgiveness, start again. I am crucified with Christ. Please Lord forgive me, I tried to do this in
and of myself. I forgot how badly I couldn't do this in myself for a minute, and I had doubt, I lacked faith in your completed work. Please Lord I
believe, now help my unbelief. Take it to Jesus on the cross again.
This is your faith, as its being refined in fire. Let the refining do the work. Can you hear the Holy Spirit now?
